Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi! I’m Alexis Taylor, a country singer/songwriter from Huntsville, Ontario.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
From a young age, I was largely influenced by country music. Both my parents are musicians, which had a huge impact on my development as a singer and songwriter. Each song I write has a different process to it. Sometimes I start with the lyrics, or sometimes I just start with a cool guitar lick. The process for writing is always different for each song. Usually every song I write is inspired by either my own real life situations, or the things that others are going through. That way my music is relatable to the audience.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
I have quite a few upcoming shows in my hometown, Huntsville, Ontario within the next month, and then I will be headed to Nashville, Tennessee for June and July to perform. My website has a list of all of my upcoming performances. To anyone who has not seen me perform, I would describe my shows as having a fun, energetic feel to them. I always try to be personal with the audience and draw them in by interacting with them as much as possible.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
I would definitely recommend “Blame It On The Whiskey”. It’s one of my favourites!
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/artists?
Some of my favourite Canadian musicians would have to be Shania Twain of course, and Avril Lavigne. Both of them had a huge impact on my desire to pursue music growing up, and inspired me to continue working hard on both my singing and songwriting.
